LISTEN TO THE SHOW:
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR HUSBAND IS HAVING A MIDLIFE CRISIS?
How do you keep your connection, your cool and your dignity when your husband is having a midlife crisis?
If you’ve ever experienced your husband taking what looks like a sudden turn off of family life lane and speeding down immature, selfish highway—possibly in a new sports car—then you’ve probably suspected him of having a midlife crisis.
Maybe he stopped telling you where he is, or suddenly isn’t coming home at the usual time.
Perhaps he complains that he’s disappointed with life, and wonders why he hasn’t gotten what he wanted.
He seems to be throwing away everything you’ve built together.
He’s grumpy, depressed, and suddenly irresponsible, which is making you furious.
No amount of talking to him is creating the desired effect, as he goes along on his self-absorbed way.
He may even be saying devastating things like, “I don’t love you anymore,” or, “I don’t know if I want to be in this marriage.” It’s painful.
You may even wonder if he’s also given up on his vows.
That’s pretty serious, and terrifying.
Unless you know what to do.
So first, let’s Double-Check the Diagnosis. Is your man really having a midlife crisis? Or could it be something else?
Today on the podcast I’m sharing:
- I’ll share the real reason he’s acting that way and how to keep your connection, your cool and your dignity.
- My guest Valerie was giving her husband a year to shape up or she was done. Then he announced that HE was leaving her. She’ll share how she fixed her marriage and saved her family.
- The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week which sounds pretty good but will make you resentful unless you make a small but important tweak.
Hi! I’m Laura.
I was the perfect wife–until I actually got married. When I tried to tell my husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided me. I dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. I then started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that’s when I got my miracle. The man who wooed me returned.
I wrote a few books about what I learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing I’m most proud of is my playful, passionate relationship with my hilarious husband John–who has been dressing himself since before I was born.
